  • He is awful, but as others have said, we need bodies for camp. Likely next to zero guaranteed money here.

  • Earl Thomas is what makes the Seahawk secondary what it is. He has the ability to let CBs be themselves and not worry about getting beat. If he's gone, it won't matter who's at CB. They will all get toasted.

  • Neiko Thorpe played almost exclusively on special teams last year.

    Assuming Thorpe does not jump into the fray at boundary corner, the Seahawks could save close to a million dollars by releasing Thorpe ($1,818,750 cap savings) and replacing him with Johnson on special teams.

    When you consider the below, it's nothing more than an extra body for the summer to compete.



    You know that if he was able to make a roster for 4 years he likely could be a very late cut or even a deep roster add. I don’t think he’s PS eligible

    The team has seen something in Johnson that has them curious, he’s a tad different than the standard profile with just 31.5 “ arms, but he’s fast and long. His knock coming out was he was not a strong tackler, but if that could be coached up in the Seahawks way of tackling, he’s big, long, and fast and could be a fit as a ST add and a reserve FS/CB. If nothing else he’s a known commodity that appears to be raw and by reports not exactly solid as a cover corner. He fits the drafted but cast off profile the team has continually checked out to see if there is a diamond to to mined from the rough. They undoubtedly know lots about him and what needs to be fixed and where his strengths and weaknesses are. Our staff is good at coaching CBs with physical talent to be better.

    Think he’s camp fodder but who knows?

    Let's revisit this signing in August. Sometimes players are simply signed for depth reasons or for a long look or b/c the team has some curiosity about the player. The negativity around every FO move on the board lately is oppressive and is some cases quite uninformed. If Johnson proves to be worth keeping crow will need to chewed upon.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    So you're saying the Seahawks are replacing Dicks (Richard Sherman, Kris Richard, Sheldon Richardson, Paul Richardson) with Johnsons.

    :D


    OK that is some funny dung! :lol: :lol: :lol:


    Not all that original tho...



    Don't know who Chris Williams is . . . but great minds think alike, I guess.

    Now we know the Seahawks' new strategy.

    :P


    Is their a Dumas available?

    Couldn't agree more Jammer.

    I don't like being down on new signings. In fact, this is the first one this offseason that hasn't inspired me.

    It's so early to tell but this could be used as ammo to get Maxwell on board quicker. I read that Maxwell is evaluating his offers, not offer. So, despite there being no reports on his visits, it seems were not the only team interested in him.

    With the roster numbers as low as they are, this in no way harms the team in anyway. Even if they went nuts in the draft and made 15 picks then another 10 UDFA guys, we still wouldn't be up to 90 men.

    Get him in, see what he looks like in camp and preseason and if it works out, great. If he doesn't then so be it.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the contract, I suspect no more than $250K guaranteed, if that.

  • Just because they signed him, doesn't mean he makes the team. This is the Seahawks we are talking about. They pile up players and let it play out. People have freaked out about signings, many times, only to see that person get cut before the season. Meh

  • He’s an NCSU alum so I’m pulling for him to make the team and become a contributor.

  • Good to see another NC State Wolfpacker added to the fold, now that Huach and Sweezy are gone. Hopefully, Dontae and Russell stick around a while.

  • unfortunately, history is against this guy. we know about the high priced CB we signed from the Ravens, but we signed others like Tramaine Brock-last year and Antoine Winfield back in 2013 and...
